(INDIANAPOLIS) - Two defendants in the lawsuits over the State Fair stage collapse are offering a 7.2-million-dollar settlement fund to victims who agree to drop their lawsuits.
Legislators voted this year to more than double the state's cap on its own liability, setting aside an extra 6-million dollars for the most seriously injured victims.
But Attorney General Greg Zoeller says victims who want part of that money will have to accept the settlement with Mid-America Sound and Thomas Engineering.
Zoeller says at least some plaintiffs have indicated interest. He says the state has invited other defendants to establish a similar arrangement.
